I found the recipe for these bars last year in a magazine. I can’t remember which one. I thought they were really cute for a fall treat and the recipe sounded yummy. Plus they are simple enough that the kiddos can help. They are basically Rice Krispy treats using a different cereal and adding peanut butter and M&Ms. I found these red, brown and yellow ones for fall. If you can’t find them, you can always use regular and take out the blue and green.
You’ll need: 30 large marshmallows, 3 Tbsp butter, 1 Tbsp peanut butter, 6 cups Cap’n Crunch peanut butter cereal, and 1 cup M&Ms.
Add marshmallows, butter and peanut butter to a large saucepan.
Cook on medium heat, stirring often, until melted and combined.
Add the cereal…
and stir, just until combined. Don’t over stir because the M&Ms will start melting and breaking.
Transfer mixture to a greased 9×13-inch pan. Press firmly to cover bottom of pan.
Allow to cool and then serve!
I decided to cut them into bite-size squares and serve them on a lollipop stick!
